“He can wrestle a bit. He throws hard shots but I can’t see him hitting me. I don’t think he’ll lay a hand on me. He can wrestle a bit but I’m incredibly hard to take down. So, I’m not worried about him taking the fight to the floor. I think I can knock him out or if it hits the ground I can see myself taking him out there as well” explained Queally.
Having competed with bigger men in the welterweight division, the Waterford man is looking forward to having a size advantage – “For the first time in a while I’m going to be the bigger man in the fight. I’m gonna have an inch in the height and I’ll have a few kilos on him come fight night. So I’m gonna maul this guy, I don’t really have a plan I’m just gonna do what I do.”
